Winter in the Soul: Lessons on Depression from Psalm 13

Along life’s journey, it’s not uncommon to experience seasons during which everything seems to be winter in one’s soul—seasons defined by feelings of loneliness and desperation. Although life goes on, a deadening sense grips us. We often can’t explain it. The sun may be shining, the sky blue, and there may be nothing to worry us—but nonetheless, all seems bleak, and we are deeply unsettled and spiritually weighed down.

Jesus Christ: Lamb on the Throne (7 of 7)

In the book of Revelation, we find John, its author, banished to the small island of Patmos because of his faithfulness to the Gospel. As he addresses his readers in the book’s opening verses, he refers to himself as “your brother and partner in the tribulation” (1:9)—an acknowledgment that the people he was writing to were believers who, much like him, were trying to make sense of their troubled lives.

Jesus Christ: Divine King (6 of 7)

Jesus often spoke about the kingdom of God, preaching and demonstrating that it had broken into the world in His coming. In His preaching He taught His disciples how to enter the kingdom and the kind of lifestyle to which this would lead, and through His miracles He gave visual, physical demonstrations of the kingdom’s restoring and transforming power.

Learn Why Jesus’s Name is above All Names

“Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name.” (Philippians 2:9)

There are more than 150 titles for Jesus throughout the Bible. In Name above All Names, authors Alistair Begg and Sinclair Ferguson focus on seven key names assigned to Christ. Their study begins in Genesis, with the earliest promise of His coming as the seed of the woman who will defeat the seed of the serpent, and wraps up in Revelation, with the promise of Christ’s return as the Lamb on the throne who takes away the sin of the world.

Finding Hope through a New Mother’s Prayer

One of life’s toughest lessons is that hardship, trouble, and pain often only make sense in the rearview mirror, when they are behind us—and admittedly not always even then. Such seeming futility may cause us to end up uttering the same words as the Preacher in Ecclesiastes: “Vanity of vanities! All is vanity” (1:2).

Jesus Christ: Great High Priest (5 of 7)

Of the titles given to Jesus, “Priest” is the only one that has virtually an entire book of the New Testament devoted to explaining it—the letter to the Hebrews. The author of Hebrews is anonymous, but his message is clear: in the face of life’s difficulties, he encourages his readers, including us, to “consider Jesus” (3:1), to be “looking to Jesus” (12:2), and especially to see Him as our Great High Priest.

Jesus Christ: Suffering Servant (4 of 7)

The second half of the prophecy of Isaiah is set against the dark backcloth of God’s judgment on His people and their exile in Babylon. Slowly, out of the shadow lands, a figure appears. He is described by God as “my servant,” and his presence dominates a series of poetic passages known collectively as the “Servant Songs.”

Alistair Begg Remembers His Bible Teachers


Dear Friend,

I have recently, for a variety of reasons, been thinking about the seventh verse of Hebrews chapter 13, which reads, “Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.” A couple chapters earlier, the writer gives a list of the names of “people of old” who “received their commendation” (11:2) because they lived trusting in God’s Word and promises. They serve as a “great cloud of witnesses” so as to encourage us to keep on looking to Jesus.

Jesus Christ: Personal Evangelist (3 of 7)

When we look at the life of Jesus, we may wonder at the great variety of ways in which He interacted with others. He conversed with them. He broke bread with them. He confronted them. He healed them. He even attended parties with them. In fact, it is a testament to Jesus’ very humanity that His comings and goings among everyday people seem, in both their breadth and their depth, to so closely resemble our own.
